Make your open water adventures twice as nice with the Necky Manitou II Tandem Kayak with Rudder. The unique hull design of this boat allows you and a partner to comfortably enjoy a leisurely paddle down at the lake or out on the open ocean, and the boat is fitted with one large cockpit so you can bring along your kid or dog. When it's time for a little solitude, the rear seat can be adjusted to offset weight for solo paddling. With comfort in mind, Necky fitted the Manitou II with its Active Comfort System seats, which are made with three different densities of foam for cushion where you want it and support where you need it. The fully adjustable seat allows the paddler to customize the fit of the seat by adjusting the angle of the seat back (think office chair), as well as the height of the butt pad. Adjustable foot braces provide a comfortable place to rest your feet, and bungee storage across the deck makes for quick access to your sunscreen and rain jacket. One water-tight hatch at the stern allows for dry storage in the bulkhead. The boat comes fitted with a durable aluminum alloy rudder system that is operated with foot pedals when lowered. The system allows you to keep the boat on track while paddling ahead and is especially nice when navigating white-capped waters.
The Necky Manitou II kayak is an incredibly versatile tandem with the feel and glide of a touring boat combined with the stability and comfort of a recreational kayak.
Necky Manitou II Tandem Recreational Flatwater Kayak - The Necky Manitou II tandem recreational kayak is an incredibly versatile two-person kayak, combining the feel and glide of a touring boat with the stability and comfort of a recreational kayak.

Once inside the Necky Manitou II tandem recreational kayak, you'll be sitting on nothing less than the most comfortable seats on the market. The Active Comfort System seats use an ultra-plush waterproof EVA foam Comfort Cushion seat pad. The seating surface moves with your body as you paddle, providing all-day comfort, breathability and drainage.
